You heard that right! I have even more sunshine to spread today, and I can't wait to get started showing my appreciation for all my wonderful bloggy friends. Seriously, you guys are the cat's pajamas - I'm so thankful for each one of you.
First off, the You are My Sunshine Award for supportive commenters. The wonderful Tara at Feel of Something New gave me this one. I loved receiving it, and I love giving it away because your wonderful comments let me know someone out there's actually reading what I have to say - and that's an awesome feeling! This award goes to:
Old Kitty (and Charlie) at Ten Lives and Second Chances
Niki at Wool'n'Nuts
Shannon O'Donnell at Book Dreaming
Myrna Foster at Night Writer
Theresa Milstein at Substitute Teacher's Saga.
Next up we have the Prolific Blogger Award, given to me by T.J. Carson at T.J. Carson's Writing Endeavor and Stina Lindenblatt at Seeing Creative (Stina's hosting a contest right now - make sure you go check it out!). For this award, I chose four wonderful ladies who blog regularly, and whose posts always make me think (or crave banoffee pie). This award goes to:
Karen G at Coming Down the Mountain
Nicole Ducleroir at One Significant Moment at a Time
Susan R. Mills at A Walk in My Shoes.
Both Anne at Piedmont Writer and Lola Sharp at Sharp Pen/Dull Sword honored me with the Sweet Blog Award, which I'd like to pass on to three of my sweetest friends:
Amy Allgeyer Cook at The Invisible Sister
Sharon Mayhew at Random Thoughts.
The Blogging Buddies Award was given to me by Tara at Feel of Something New and Anne at Piedmont Writer. Thanks, ladies! I'd like to pass it on to some of my favorite blogging buddies, whose posts and comments are always a pleasure to read!
Jackee at Winded Words
Jen at unedited
Lola Sharp at Sharp Pen/Dull Sword
Stephanie Cheryl at Craziness, College, and a Little Creativity
Bish Denham at Random Thoughts.
And then we have the Creative Writer Award, presented to me by the most awesome Talli Roland (who's just as over-caffeinated as I am!) This one I'd like to pass on to some writers who have been kind enough to post some of their fantastic fiction on their blogs for our reading pleasure. You guys are all incredible writers and I hope you'll keep favoring us with samples of your work!
Roland D. Yeomans at Writing in the Crosshairs
Tara at Feel of Something New
Anne at Piedmont Writer
Terry Lynn Johnson
Christi Goddard at A Torch in the Tempest.
This was a whole lot of naming and linking for me in one night. If I've forgotten anyone, I'm so sorry! I love you all, and I'd give all of you each one of these awards if I could.
I really hope you'll check out some of these great links! Happy Tuesday, Everyone!
P.S. So many new people have followed me during these past couple of weeks of my contest, and I'm so glad to see each and every one of you here! If I haven't been by your blog or followed, it's because I couldn't find your link. If you've followed me and I haven't followed you, please let me know so I can pay you a visit! (Yes, Jackee, I did copy you - I hope you don't mind!)
